. kenneth jordan the head of the local chapter of the knights of columbus whose brother died in an auto accident two days ago. ken and his fellow knights have put forth this evening's event and she had been anticipating it eagerly. this evening it is a particular pleasure to welcome mark back to his alma maters. he took several courses with me during his student days but our relationship wasn't completely academic. through the generosity of his father, i was able to accompany him in one of his classmates in travels through poland and the soviet union in the summer of 1985, the summer before their senior year. and on the first day in now st. petersburg, mark, always his father's son, asked if we could sell their great daily mass during our travels. this, we arranged and for me the happiness and praying daily in the soviet union with the gifted students was one of the brightest parts of our journey. mark went on to write a senior thesis on lyndon johnson's war on poverty. his list of achievements and onerous since graduation is impressive. from 1988 to 1995, marks served as the founder an
the campaign, people in hamilton county, in the columbus area -- and also cincinnati, them claiming there was not the infrastructure. guest: the romney campaign, in fairness to them, were not able to get their organization up and running until the spring. that was one of the advantages that president obama had. he was preparing for this campaign for four years, and mitt romney only had months. host: our caller. good morning. caller: good morning. host: you are up early. guest: i like to watch. i want to know what happened to in romney -- ann romney. it seems that after the convention, she pretty much vanished, so i would like to hear your take on that. guest: i actually talked to a lot of staffers about her and her role in the campaign, and what i was told is that there were some advertisements cut of annm -- ann romney. she did not do well with voters. what the romney folks told me is that it was not believable that this belt up -- that the spouse of a canada would be a good test of fire to that canada because it is not believable. of course, his bows would say these nice things ab
, who is romney's ohio campaign director who was hold up at a hotel in columbus. he was hitting refresh on the state and county board of elections websites. he sees two things. provisional ballots that were still out and then secondly, he's hearing that in hamilton county, that crucial county around cincinnati, there are still precincts out that may be favorable. so he tries to do the prudent thing and say let's be careful here because i'm hearing that there's still some good precincts out for us. because of that the romney folks said, all right, let's hang tight. they stop the advance guy from -- who had already made the call to start the wheels in motion to -- >> where romney was going to call the president, things like that -- >> makes the movement from the hotel to the podium. that will started. the advance guy has to call back four people and say, stop, stop, stop. for every an hour -- >> it is no bill daley and al gore. >> it was going to that. they even drafted a speech for paul ryan to give down at the podium saying folks, go home, we'll see you tomorrow morning. they were neari
. if you want to win in the i-4 corridor. if you want to win in the sub b suburbs of columbus, ohio. if you want to win in the election, in the places where elections are also won. >> well, i can ask you, john heilemann as a keen observer of the electoral scene, was not the die cast for mitt romney and perhaps the rest of the year in terms of republican politics on the evening when all of the ten candidates on stage were asked to raise their hands if they were in favor of a dollar raise in revenue and $10 in budget cuts. and not one raised his or her hand. that was the definition of crazy. right there. >> a vivid illustration. and you think about mitt romney constantly out, trying to get further to the right than anybody who challenged him. get to the right of rick perry on immigration. get to the right of rick santorum on contraception. these are not places where you win elections in the middle of the electorate. those are positions that are, if not crazy, then pretty far outside the mainstream. >> and by the way, those are things that guys like my dad -- >> right. >> -- who never
and then maybe it is irreversible, some of the damage. >> bill: barbara is on the line from columbus, new jersey. hey, barbara, good morning. >> hi, bill, how are you? >> bill: we're great. you have a question or a comment? >> caller: yes, i have a comment. i was calling into the show because i just happen to tune into the show and listen to what you were saying about the fiscal cliff. with the republicans and the democrats. and i'm an independent. i'm so glad to be a part of this country but right now, i'm just not in love with republicans at this point because they're the party of no. it seems they're very selfish. you know people shouldn't -- right now vote any republican in office because they all seem to be on this agenda of destruction with this country. i just don't understand how they're not listening to their constituents because most republicans who are middle class are middle class. first. they're not democrats or republicans. they want the same thing for this country to go forward and to go ahead and they're
to take the state if he wanted to win, but ohio is auto country. i met voters in columbus who were outraged because it was a bold-faced lie. all chrysler said is it may make extra jeeps in china. here's what i said about romney's surprising misunderstanding of the auto industry back then. >> for decades and decades and decades, american auto companies have made cars in the countries or the regions in which they sell them. i want to remind americans when they buy toyotas and hondas and hyundais and nissans in america that are assembled here, back home somebody said why are you shipping our jobs to america? it shows a misunderstanding by the romney camp to try and get under people's nails about jobs and cars being made elsewhere. >> christine didn't see that coming and got stuck listening to my rant. they knew all of this very well and chrysler immediately denied the claim and romney stood by his ad. i don't need to tell you what an important swing state ohio is. there may be a host of reasons he department carry the state in the end, but his stunt didn't help. he tried to deceive oh

years ago. don in columbus. hi don welcome. >> caller: hi, steph, how are you? >> stephanie: good. go ahead. >> caller: i was curious. i watched the shows yesterday and it was noticeable that tim kind of explained himself to everybody including chris wallace. >> stephanie: geithner. >> caller: yeah, right. and mr. boehner decided that only chris could clear his -- and no one else could give him any guff about it. so i thought that was pretty interesting. one show against five. >> stephanie: right. we only need to say flabbergasted once. >> flabbergasted. >> stephanie: all right. the boehner yesterday. >> there is a stalemate. let's not kid ourselves. >> stephanie: i wonder who could be impeding any progress. what kind of orange idiot could be standing in the way? >> somebody is not cooperating. some people feel like they won an election or something. some sort of mandate. flabbergasted. >> stephanie: allen in gary, indiana. welcome. >> caller: good morning. i'm wondering how much money can we get by
canceled today. in columbus, ohio, passengers used the much needed time to catch up on rest. pittsburgh, pennsylvania, plows hit the ground but it wasn't enough to keep the heavy snow off the streets. greyhound buses were forced to cancel many of their routes. in hamburg, new york, commuters are frustrated. >> it's about a 25-minute drive usually. tonight it's an hour. >> reporter: and skiers are delighted. fema is urging people to update their emergency kits for cold weather including blankets, dpl gloves, first aid material, and a battery-powered radio. but in syracuse, new york, this is no match for people used to this weather. >> it's business as usual. i think a lot of people are on vacation for the holidays. but usually it's good travel until you get too many people on the road. that's usually the bigger problem, is the people trying to drive in it. >> reporter: and the roads could have been worse because it's a holiday week, a lot of people didn't go into the office. also, schools and universities are off making it that much easier for cleanup crews to do their job, candy. >> tha
the man's hair. the debates were really, really good. item from columbus, ohio, and nobody down here really likes our governor. the debates were really, really good for me then that mr. williams, you have a great christmas. everybody, have a great christmas. they are calling me back upstairs. host: the debate. guest: the debates or the event of this campaign season and i think opened a window in the changing realities in politics in america. during that first debate, there was this incredible phenomenon which was social media was alive. i have been in washington more than 30 years as a political person. i have never had to report on a debate where it was scored instant by instant by the american electorate. usually people watched the debate and have a reaction to what was said on stage, and then the next day there is all this fact checking and people say that is wrong. gerald for talking about no soviet includes in poland -- there are moments like that. but in general, the response is analyzed later. in 2012, the debate was analyzed second by second by people on twitter and blogs. it
in the columbus area and also in cincinnati who were just not having the infrastructure that they claimed. guest: the romney campaign was not able to get operation ohio or anywhere else up and running and that was one of it -- advantage obama had a. ronny only had six months to really prepare. host: oregon, a democrat decline, good morning. guest: were up early on the west coast. caller: i want to know what happened to ann romney. she was much more visible early on. the wives dehumanize a candidate and that was to be her job. dr. the convention, she pretty much vanished. guest: i spoke to a lot of the romney campaign staff about parole in the campaign. what i was told is that there were some ads cut between romney in the general election campaign that she just did not test well with focus groups. they showed it to focus groups of voters and they did not register positive review of those ads. what the ronny people told me was that it was not believable that the spouse of a candidate would be a good test of fire to the candidate because they are not believable. of course his boss is going to say t

"cnn newsroom" with my friend suzanne malveaux starts right now. >>> i'm suzanne malveaux. welcome to our 500th edition of our show. we've got a lot to cover so let's get right to it. russia dominating our newscast this hour. for two very different reasons. first, the man, that man you see there, russia's top diplomat, he is now taking an active role in trying to end the civil war in syria. now, remember, both russia and china have blocked u.n. attempts to force out the assad regime. now the russians say they are willing to meet with the syrian opposition. it could open the door for real u.n. action on the ground, action that could mean american involvement. we've got more details in a live report in just a minute. >>> but also, russia's president formally saying no to americans who want to adopt russian children. it is a heartbre
anywhere from north of memphis right through evansville, cincinnati, columbus, ohio, into pennsylvania. that's the center of the heaviest snow. 50 miles one way or the other you'll get snow. cincinnati, lexington, you could get ice mixing in. snow comes in for tomorrow morning, into tomorrow afternoon. there is a bowl game going on at yankee stadium tomorrow. it will be snowing for sure there. and pulling to the east by sunday night and into monday. but if that is not good enough for you, there is another one for tuesday, another one for friday, and another one for next tuesday as well, spreading snow and maybe cheer, i don't know, or bronx cheers because it is yankees stadium, throughout the northeast. >> are you rubbing it? all i heard you snay is snow, snow, snow, snow, snow. you're like charlie brown's mom. >> rain for new orleans. >> thank you, chad. we'll check back with you. >>> a woman accused of posing as a relative of a murdered schoolchild out of newtown, connecticut, she was allegedly soliciting money for a fake fund. that's next.

. you probably didn't learn more about 1492 then the year that columbus actually did land in america. i don't even know if that's verifiable. it's hard to take information to convey so you have all these different voices and i thought maybe there's a way to synthesize all those voices together and that was, ended up being western wake was a weekly backlog of things that would take normal event to normal speeches things caption already in interweave these things through them. it was very successful in that it was a way for people to catch up on the news if they missed it but more importantly sorted to put things into context. what are the things you can only see from this? i think one is that presidents are not afforded a public voice to show what they are curious people in general. the main thing you can see and backstage footage is what does they president ask about? what is he curious about? what is the follow up on? i do not know president bush very well and he seems to have a lot of wonderful qualities but being curious is not one of them. being able to show this president is being
that the country seems to long. host: ed is in columbus, ohio. he's talking to us on the democrats line this morning. ed, you're on the "washington journal" with joseph rosenberg, research associate at the tax policy center. caller: thank you, good morning. mr. rosen berg, with the fiscal cliff blooming, do you believe the i.r.s. will be able to calibrate their system at this late of a date and would the debt ceiling debate blooming, could that delay federal refunds? thank you. guest: yes. the question about the i.r.s. is a good one and it is an important one. so it almost is certainly bound to complicate the filing season. i think already the i.r.s. has said that they are -- they have not released updated withholding tables for winner to. -- 2013. what that means is employers will use the withholding tables for federal income tax. but if a deal is made or no deal is made, that's going to have to change and at some point, employers will have to change their federal income tax withholding amount. i mentioned with the alternative minute 34u78 tax, that will -- minimum tax, that will compl
weapons online. i wonder how many swing voters in columbus, ohio, think you should be able to get an assault weapon online. that answer -- this is a 90/10 proposition, what i always say in congress, 90% for, 10% against. the republican party better understand, they'd better understand -- i'm telling them the same thing i told them throughout the year -- this is going to put them in a horrific position moving forward if they stand in the way of these common-sense reforms. >> well, and again, if joe biden can build a coalition that includes not just moderate democrats and liberal democrats but more centrist democrats as well as business leaders can be parts of this, law enforcement for sure, and to get some republicans on board, if you look at the right-wing echo chamber now in media, internet, talk radio, you know, it's all about the normal partisanship and the normal-looking -- pick little holes in the arguments for some sort of action. if the vice president and the president build a broad coalition, that 90/10 thing will be a reality including in the house of representatives whic
